Hello everyone, just finished putting together a couple parts for our engineers. I'm looking to build some serious workhorses that will do great with modeling and creating toolpaths. Here is what I've put together, what are you opinions??
Hey Keveeen, I did not end up getting this mobo, but I did end up with a very similar set up. I ended up going with the SuperMicro X8DA3, which is an EATX and not the Enhanced EATX.
I was having issues w/ x3 and windows 7, the Maintenance update seemed to help out but we were still slow to create toolpaths. I believe x4 is working much smoother with windows 7.
Also, this board requires you to install the newest chipset from SuperMicro, so if you want to use a 5600 chip make sure you call supermicro and get the required parts. Also, I ended up going with a ATI v7800 due to price and performance, I checked out the reviews at 3dprofessor.org and it seemed to be one of the best bang for the buck video cards.
